Following the ABP decision to overrule the LA and refuse permission to Sheehan Medical for a private hospital in Bishopstown, and that we all agree that no financial irregularities takes place in the planning process, the question has to be asked why such opposite decisions between LA planners and ABP are occurring on such a regular basis (Tank Field sports area in Mayfield another recent example).

the €3.5 million in development contributions the local authority would have got should point you in the right direction. You’re right, its mad how a local authority can contravene their own development plan by trying to get A1 green belt land rezoned and we are back to the old chestmut that there was no traffic or transport infrastructure to help the area either. How a local authority can grant permission with 92 conditions is amazing. Who will enforce the conditions? No one
